Lion’s Moon

Even though your housecat may eat out of a bowl, cats are predators. Their eyes are made to track movement, and their superior depth perception makes them expert prey-pouncers. Humans can go either way, but the wild Leo moon is more playful than prey-ful. Use your movement trackers to go where the wild fun is.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be getting to know someone. The indirect questions and broad topics you pose will not only be fun fodder for conversation, but you’ll also get answers that are more revealing than those you’d get by asking a personal question.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Total ease brings zero satisfaction. So if you’re slightly uncomfortable with today’s work process, it’s an excellent omen that things will play out in a satisfying way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Open yourself up, invent some nonsense, and share it. Your creativity is flowing. You can make people laugh, think and generally feel good about being in the human family.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll get and keep people’s attention. It might not matter to you now, but there is real power here if you know what to do with it. What do you want them to do, besides like you?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re a heart-centered person, and this affects everything you do. Coming from your heart, it’s difficult not to offer help or try to make things better or fall in love a little bit with everyone you meet.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In certain arenas, the ability to make people laugh can be an uncommon talent. People around you will appreciate how you don’t take yourself too seriously. Social norms are more elastic than most people think.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be a catalyst — ready to take risks, be playful, make people uncomfortable and inspire them to do what they normally wouldn’t. It’s all for the sake of creating something bigger than what any individual would accomplish alone.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even if you like how everything is going now, you’re still willing to see how much more might be accomplished. Innovation is born of a willingness to deconstruct and reconstruct, shake things up and turn ideas on their ears.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Organized and practical, you’ll prevent problems by thinking ahead and preparing for all kinds of possible scenarios. Knowing you’ve done all you can to ensure your security and safety makes you feel more adventurous.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can forget the facts of a story or lose the unimportant details of an experience, but you won’t forget the emotion of it. Knowing this, you’ll strive to put a good feeling into today’s interactions.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). On most days, you are open to collaboration and the free exchange of ideas. But you’ve put so much time into a certain project that it wouldn’t make sense to compromise your vision at this point. Own it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll gravitate toward those who are getting the results you would like to achieve. It is always easier for you to behave in a disciplined manner when you are with those who are similarly driven.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 17). You’ll be near your favorite people this year, and they inspire you to be your best. You have a goal in June. You’ll reduce the unknown factors in your life and find a path that’s highly likely (if not guaranteed) to get you from point A to point B. August sees you celebrating a personal victory. September pays you for your talent. Virgo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 4, 33, 39 and 4.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Heartache cannot entirely be prevented, but by thinking and acting smart, you can avoid most unnecessary emotional pain. TAURUS: Your powers of attraction amp up as you strive to the higher ideals of your gender. GEMINI: You’ll experience great mystery and a bit of a challenge. CANCER: You’ll make concessions for the one you love. LEO: There’s something you once had and lost. You lost it for a reason. Move forward, not backward. VIRGO: Your energy level impacts relationships. Take care of yourself, and you’ll find it easier to love and be loved. LIBRA: Social efforts with friends favorably affect your love life. SCORPIO: Relationships get stale from time to time, but all it takes is a little creativity to spice things up. SAGITTARIUS: Thinking of someone too often will trick you into believing that you are falling in love when actually you are just falling into a habit of mind. CAPRICORN: Logistics matter. Sort out the details of a date beforehand. AQUARIUS: A loved one may not want to do the same things as you right now, but that doesn’t mean you’re poorly matched. PISCES: You don’t have to be at a five-star venue to create special times with someone you love.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Virgo moon and the Taurus sun cast a light on couples of these spectacularly compatible signs. Two earth signs such as this match up as a power couple. Not only do they find it easy to like each other, but they also find it easy to be liked by the world. Together they build up and improve their environment, social circle and community. As they strive to have a good life, others benefit, too.
